Lee Miller’s work for Vogue from 1941 to 1945 sets her apart as a photographer and writer of extraordinary ability. Her words combine immediacy with acute observation, and deep personal involvement with professional detachment. Complementing her writing here are two hundred remarkable photographs from the Lee Miller Archives. They show war-ravaged cities, buildings, and landscapes; but above all they portray war-resilient people, soldiers, leaders, medics, evacuees, prisoners of war, the wounded, the villains, and the heroes.There is the raw edge of combat portrayed at the siege of St. Malo and in the bitterly fought Alsace campaign, and the disbelief and outrage Miller describes on witnessing the victims of Dachau. The war’s horror is relieved by the spirit of post-liberation Paris, where she indulged in frivolous fashions and recorded memorable conversations with Picasso, Cocteau, Eluard, Aragon, and Colette. The book ends with Miller’s on-the-scene report giving a sardonic description of Hitler’s abandoned house in Munich and the looting and burning of his alpine fortress at Berchtesgaden, which marked a symbolic end to the war.

Recensione:

[Miller's] fascinating and at times haunting record of the Allied advance across Europe after D-Day ... the story is vividly told through her letters, her articles for British Vogue and nearly 160 powerful, resonant photographs ... a moving account of cruelty, suffering and courage that we should never forget. --Black & White Photography

From the broken faces of its victims to the moments of frivolous joy found by those even in their darkest moments, this tome is a visual memoir of a cruel moment in time. --Image Ireland

An intensely personal, immediate and eerily beautiful narrative of war. --Sussex Life

It's very difficult to do justice to this most excellent and emotive book, one where you are with the author all the time sharing both her fears, expectations and excitement - a book that I thoroughly recommend. --Blackmore Vale Magazine

Fascinating and informative, and a very good read. --Book Oxygen
